Default First project with the lathe.

Well this is the first project with the lathe. I must say it was interesting with no real measuring instruments. But it turned out really well. Now the top secret project, can you guess what it is used for?

Id say your better off with a dial caliper. Craftsman 0-6 inch $40

http://www.sears.com/sr/javasr/produ...recision+Tools

.001 graduations, which is probably fine for what your doing right? I doubt the HF mic. set will have .0001 graducations.

If you want a micrometer, Id spend a bit more money and get Made in USA. you can get lufkins(not GREAT, but decent) at like an ace hardware for like 25 a piece. Id also check Ebay for some used starretts, Brown&sharpe, mitutoyo, the good names. Im sure they can be had used.

Go with Enco and try the friction thimble set. Made in Poland. Don't remember the exact price, but around $150 for a boxed set of 0-6". The ratchet thimble versions are Chinese...last I looked...never liked ratchets anyway.

I picked up a set of six Starrett mikes off ePay in wooden boxes, with standards. 5"-12", six mikes (not the ones with the replaceable anvils) for just over $200. They were all in great shape. I would look at ePay first and see what's out there.

I would stick with Starrett, B&S and Mitutoyo in that order. I know Mit's is Japanese but they are good and 1/2 the price of Starrett new.

Stay away from the chink tools you will never be able to trust them. I had one and it ended up in the scrap bin, I would even have given it away.
